Dee passed away, Thursday, July 16, 2020 at her home in Dickinson.

DeLilah “Dee” Rieker was born December 6, 1941 in Tappen, North Dakota, the daughter of Reinhold and Erna (Siegle) Rieker. She graduated from high school there and went on to Westmar College in Le Mars, Iowa where she received her Bachelor’s Degree in Music Education. She moved back to North Dakota and taught music in several different schools in the Williston and Alexander area. During this time she furthered her education and received her Master’s in Counseling from Aberdeen University. In 1985 she moved to Dickinson and became a Guidance Counselor at Dickinson High School.

Dee didn’t need to announce her faith, it was apparent in the light that shown through her. She had a passion for encouraging people with a servant’s heart as evidenced by many. She loved music and enjoyed gardening, animals, Sudoku puzzles, reading, traveling, and time spent with friends.

Dee is survived by her sister, Diane Haan of Bismarck, and Dozo, her dog, which Dee lovingly called her niece; and special friend, Michael Greenwood of Dickinson.

She was preceded in death by her parents; Reinhold and Erna Rieker; infant brother, Kenneth; and brother-in-law, Tom Haan.

I worked with Dee at Dickinson High. She was extremely dedicated to helping students. Her smile radiated friendliness. I haven't seen Dee since I retired in 2008 but believe me, she was a loyal colleague and friend. She will remain close in our hearts.
